I have 2 gouramis and I love them they are very hardy and do great in a community tank. The weird thing is that they won't mate if you don't have live plants trust me I have tried and it doesn't work out. As soon as I put live plants in they built a bubble nest and are still building. The reason I think they need live plants in there is so they can weave the plant debris in the nest. I would highly recommend getting this type of fish!

We have a striped orange dwarf and two blue dwarfs in our tank, the blue ones are tiny and really funny to watch. The orange one is bigger and can be quite aggressive to the opaline gourami we have, but gets along fine with all the other fish in the tank (corys, plecs, barbs). They seem to have a lot of personality and definite facial features!

I just bought a baby (7/8 or 1 inch) neon blue gourami today to put in with my platys and cherry shrimp. He (I think) is a wonderfully coloured fish and full of personality. At the pet shop, I walked up to the tank and he swam to the front and followed me around it. I wasn't even intending on buying him, but his personality and colours got me. Overall, a wonderful fish.

I used to keep a female Pearl Gourami name mikey for a long time ago. They are so cute but yet shy. Once in a while, she came out of her hiding spot behind the heater and everytime I walk by, she went back in the hiding spot. I reconmend this fish for a beginner because they live for a long time. My pearl Gourami did. ^^

My pet store sells three color gouramis, yellow, gray and white. I own a gray and a yellow. The yellow is very passive and has gotten between bettas to stop a disagreement. The gray is the latest one I got. This one chases the yellow one away from the food. I am going to have to separate them to feed them. I don't understand why this is happening. I have someone who is going to take the gray one as soon as they get their aquarium set up. Is this common of the gray one or is this unique? I want to own one of each color but I am afraid to get another one or even try a white one.

    Well, first - every fish has a different personality, just like humans do. So you can't necessarily base whether it will be a bully or not simply on what color gourami you have. Also, there are many different types of gouramis and I am not sure just by what color you say they are what type they actually are. Different gourami types do have somewhat different temperaments.

    There is one disease which come for fishes the belly become big and it'll die soon it may be the disease. You can do a research on it probably.

    I was told that they will always eat so overfeeding will cause the bloated stomach. Feed only every other day.

Believe it or not, Walmart has female eon dwarf gouramis. The best part is, if you have any problems within 90 days, you take them the fish and the reciept and they will refund your money or give you another fish.

    I bought mine yesterday at Petco and I got 2. I'm not sure if they're girl girls or boys or both. But one of thm is not using his gills but he was before. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing. He's not moving as much as he used to (he was active during the morning) plz let me know if you know anything about what's going on. thanks

    Yes, today I saw neon blue dwarf gouramis at Walmart for $1.84. I couldn't believe it. I paid $6 for mine at Petsmart!

I have a 2 foot long snakeskin gourami, about 50 pounds, very large. He eats pellets, goldfish, white mice, pretty much anything. He also lives with a wolfish about a foot long, all in a 350 gallon tank. I truly sit back and enjoy my tank a lot, it's relaxing.

    That is a very intriguing pet to have in your home!

    Snakeskin gouramis don't grow to 2 feet. Giant gouramis do.
  • chris - 2011-11-29
    Sounds like you have a nice big Giant Gourami, not a snakeskin

I can easily determine the sexual difference at first sight...(only from adult balloon kissing gouramis)...also I have bred about 1500-2000 fishes at a time.

My girlfriend and I have 3 fish tanks. One is a 14 gallon containing 15 fish, 13 of them are a mixture of common goldfish and fantails, the other two are plecos, all get along quite well and have alot of porsonality. The second tank is a 20 gallon we bought a week ago and it contains two kissing gourami, two plecos, three mollies, and two dwarf gourami, one male and one female. The dwarf gourami are wonderful, they usualy stay near the bottom of the tank and hide in a skull ornament, but when they are out and about the tank they show off wonderful color and the male will sometimes closely follow one of the kissing gourami. They are a wonderful addition to a tank and can swim very fast and sometimes jump out of the water. This fish has a great personality. The third tank I bought the morning after we got the 20 gallon, it's a 55 gallon and is a work in progress and I hope by tommorrow (thanks to Animal-World) I will have an amazon puffer and two bosemans rainbow fish to put in it, this site is a great information source.
